For drivers and business fleets who want to start the transition of producing zero direct emissions from their vehicles while doing deliveries over a lot of miles during the day or on long trips, the electric vehicle (EV) is the only choice.
In addition to business fleets and private drivers making the transition, some states have plans to ban the sale of new gasoline-powered vehicles. According to an article written by Alexa St. John from Automotive News, California Gov. Gavin Newsome has planned such a ban for 2035.
However, according to Electric Cars 101: The Answers To All Your EV Questions from Consumer Reports Magazine, an electric vehicle can only go just over 200 miles and require planning when and where to find an EV quick charging station or a Level 2 charger.
For private drivers and business fleet vehicles, Blue1 Energy Equipment can install and maintain the CT4000 Level 2 charger at the following locations to ensure full charge when they are ready to go:
- Apartment complexes for residents
- Employer’s company for employees
- Business customers could charge while shopping or eating
- Business fleet vehicles for full charge overnight
Even with the convenience of having the chargers installed in the above locations, what happens if an EV is traveling the interstate and doesn’t know where the charging stations are installed? And not just any chargers, but fast-charging stations with a charging speed of 250 RPH (miles of range per hour) because the goal is to get back out on the road as quickly as possible.
The answer is gas stations can start incorporating EV charging stations like Blue1 Energy Equipment’s Express 100, 200, and 250 stations. If gas stations can’t do it, erect charging stations next to the gas stations by renting or negotiating space from nearby businesses.
To easily find the fast-charging stations or places with the Level 2 stations, Blue1 Energy Equipment uses the ChargePoint network. According to How The Electric Car Charging Network Is Expanding from Consumer Reports Magazine, ChargePoint has 66,000 charging spots accessible to the public. With the ChargePoint app, an EV driver can find the nearest one and charge the vehicle on other networks.
